Description

This is a joint projects class with Medill in conjunction with the Knight News Innovation Lab at Northwestern. McCormick students (primarily CS and CE majors) and journalism students will join cross-functional teams to assess and develop, from both an audience/market perspective and a technology perspective, a range of technology projects with the ultimate goal of deployment for impact in media and journalism.  Some projects may continue over the summer if students are interested.

The class requires submission of an application that will be used by the faculty to determine the class composition.

  • This course fulfills the Interface Breadth & Project Course requirement.
